Modern Blocks Quilt-A-Long

Something really exciting has been going on in the background here at ASWC over the past few months. We have been plotting and planning a little Quilt A Long and we would love you to join in.


We will be using the book Modern Blocks as our guide and will be making a sampler quilt using 12 blocks from the book. It will run from May 2013 until April 2014. So it’s a big one, but we will be creating a sampler quilt so you can pick and choose which months you join in with if you don’t think you can commit to the full QAL.
